Sorry about my comment that added to that negative vote train. Anyways adding to your question, maybe he forgot to buy a cooler or didn't want to overclock right away?
It's actually weaker that the 2gb version if you don't sli.
They don't require the same card. You can SLI with an older card and let that one take care of the physics.
And he would only really be using one of the monitors for gaming.
The 760 isn't powerful enough to utilize all of the 4gb.
I agree, I don't know why people mount the fan like that.
I'm going to take a guess and say its more of a work computer.
With an LED strip, you can't even tell that the mobo is brown.
You forgot to put the motherboard in the list.
That version of 3DMark isn't 3DMark 11.
The 770 is most likely $100 dollars more in Australia, I wouldn't exactly call that slightly more.
Those are Australian prices.
I don't have an ssd and I can use it as soon as its to desktop.
That sir is a monstrously overpowered psu for the parts. Not necessarily a bad thing.
Reference cards are better suited cooling wise for SLI. Aftermarket styles tend to blow the hot air into the case instead of straight out the back like reference cards.
Actually the U.S. military has been doing tests about that kinda stuff and they have found it quite noticeable if you then look at a slower response or lower fps. Honestly, I don't care about it that much unless it is actually noticeable. As long as there isn't stuttering or a lag, I'm happy.
Now that is one crazy story and that is a lot of storage. Especially that ssd.
My god that optical drive is old.
If I remember right, its somewhere in Corsair's forums. I saw the link for it in one of the builds on here. Good luck.
It's shame about the 9590. I believe they were on sale for $250 last week on Newegg.
I did my build in February so I don't know if MSI decided to cheap out or what.
You should download corsair link to change the color of the H100i light. I think you have to find a beta version of it though to works with Windows 8.1. Also you can install windows with a usb drive.
I have the G45 and I can personally say it only comes with 2 sata cables.
You are going to need a bigger psu. 430 watts is way too low for using a GTX 760. The very lowest recommended by nvidia is 500w.
You sir, should get sleeved cables and this build will be perfect. +1
In the end, its up to you what you get. Looks good to me.
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($204.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($101.39 @ Mwave)
It equates more to an i3 actually but still good.
The 770 is a bit weaker than the 290 and the 770 has half the vram.
I would still get a larger psu since AMD recommends 500w and you ALWAYS want more than the minimum recommended wattage. If you won't overclock, get the i5 4670 instead and a non "Z" mobo. You won't need an aftermarket cooler either if you don't overclock.
Get 8gb of RAM instead of 12, you don't need anymore than that for gaming.
Need to get a couple of Titan Z's definitely.
You can play ultra easily. Nice choices except I would have picked Western Digital for a hard drive. Also you might want to get a bigger power supply since you are using a Radeon R9 290 and I'm guessing overclocking. A 650w should be good. Otherwise you risk your psu failing and taking the entire system with it.
I know how that goes. My one friend is a huge Razer fanboy when he has never used anything else.
Hey if you are missing the old start menu then this is for you.
The Logitech 700s isn't bad looking. The pictures on here don't do it justice though. I have and its pretty awesome.
If the part of windows 8.1 is the metro or miss the old start button then this is for you. Will never have to see metro again unless you manually go to it.
Better tie it down, might fly away with all those fans.
Btw here is my parts list
The Hyper 212 EVO comes with thermal paste but you can get the arctic silver if you want, the drawback of AS5 is that the curing time for the paste is 200 hours so won't be seeing your best temps for awhile. If you can afford the GTX 770, go for it. Otherwise nice build. If I had $1350 like you, I could afford a 780 or maybe a 780 ti in my build instead of my 760.
Its mainly a preference but Nvidia does have PhysX and GPU Boost.
The 780 ti would be pretty close to dual 770s unless you get the 4gb version of the 770s, then they will definitely outperform the 780 ti. A single 780 ti will run a little cooler than dual 770s but they will not get to the point of overheating, just a little higher than a single.
Unless you are doing heavy duty editing quite often get the 4770k.
Alright, that makes sense and that is a pretty and fault on Cooler Master's end for designing it that way.
You should probably face the Hyper 212 evo so its blowing out the back considering there is no vent to blow out the top.
The 8 pin cpu cable can easily reach when put behind the mobo, there is a opening at the top of the case for it.
I don't know your budget but I have a GTX 760 and it runs ESO on ultra easily. I feel like there will be comments telling you not to waste your time on ESO too, lol. I personally like it, I've played the beta and didn't find it bad.
Please clean up those cables. I have the same case without a modular psu unlike you and I have some pretty good cable management. Other than that nice build.
The Rosewill Hive psu is a tier 2 psu so I doubt ir will blow up. Heres the link to the ranking.
